    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    They believed in Darwin and didn't anticipate tennis people would be uniquly evolving the other way (towards Neanderthals).

    Djokovic is "surprised" at Wimbledon seeding

    Agreed. It has become sexy among tennis-pundtry to go against Federer. Hipster tennis talking-heads love to artificially boost their anti-establishment profile by being anti Fed and pro Rafa. It's sorta like Federer represents the establishment, and since Nadal is his rival, he represents the...

    Djokovic is "surprised" at Wimbledon seeding

    From those, Cahill claimed that this was not a new issue for him and that he also opposed Djokovic getting bumped from 21 to 12th last year. But I coudln't find any Cahill tweet from last year lamenting about this. There is no evidence he complained about this issue in public. So either Cahill...

    Djokovic is "surprised" at Wimbledon seeding

    Wasn't Djokovic himself upgraded last year in his seeding? Or the year before I forgot... in any case the exact same formula used this year led last year to Djoker being seeded significantly higher than his ranking, which had dropped due to his wife and Pepe starving him in the name of Buddha...

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    I feel vidicated all the ones that I already dispise (and never follow on twitter) are exposing their lack of understanding as to why Wimbledon does what it does (due to grass surface tennis's tiny positon on the tennis calendar and ATP ranking).

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    The controversy is not completely Nadal's fault. He just outed his frustration but then (as usual) when a player of his stature and caliber says something, his fans and the loyal tennis media amplify it and turn his simple emotional reaction into something bigger - some sort of a cause celebre...

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    Yea they reserve the right to manipulate the seeding but in practice they simply adhere to the WTA ranking 99.9 percent of the time (except upseeding Serena every now and then/every couple of years when they feel like she is severely underranked.. but then that's moot since even the US Open made...

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    Because there is significantly more surface-specialty on the men's tour. Women's tennis is more uniform across all surfaces. Latest example: The one who won FO two weeks ago is a grass court lover who openly admitted hating clay. Three of the 4 in the semi final in Paris were flat hitters.

    "It does not seem right that Wimbledon is the only tournament to have it's own seed criteria" - Rafael Nadal

    Poppycock. Nadal is not right at all (not even morally). If he is arguing for some kind of "all slam" uniformity or equality then you can't have genuine equality unless grass court tournaments are at least 1/3rd of the tour and therefore one third of the points that (in theory) could be...

    Berrittini the Serve Meanie

    The guy is in his mid twenties -- midway between FAA and Raonic's age. So of course he should be better than the teen. Literally everybody at the top of the ATP has no excuse to not play better than Felix. It's now or never for Berrettini and his generation-mates (Djere, Kyle Edmund... etc) to...

    2019 Queens QF: Tsitsipas vs Auger-Aliassime

    Never go full Cilic... in this case including growing in height (hopefully FAA has stopped growing as he seems to have reached the optimum elevation level as of right now).

    Murray or Monfils: Who's the funniest guy on the ATP tour?

    Djokovic hasn't completely lost his humor.
